Colorful asian inspired cabbage salad with peanut butter dressing
A summery salad to add to the salad collection of the blog, I was craving coleslaw but then decided to add a few asian-ish elements that I like! So we ended up with cabbage, carrots, bean sprouts and a creamy peanut butter dressing, that is sooo good.
It is a nice twist from the mayonnaise or vinaigrette based salad and it's good! It's full of protein so it can be a whole meal in itself with a bit of bread. Have a nice day!
